Today on the Hill: Trump Readies Third SOTU Address

February 4, 2020

As the Senate prepares to close out its impeachment trial, President Donald Trump is set to deliver his third State of the Union (SOTU) address tonight. The president’s annual speech to Congress will reportedly focus on key economic wins — ranging from the 2017 tax rewrite to the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) — with a theme of “The Great American Comeback” that seeks to kick off his 2020 reelection messaging. White House aides also expect the president to emphasize lowering the cost of health care and prescription drugs, boosting support for working families, and achieving comprehensive immigration reform.

Meanwhile, Iowa voters and 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls are eagerly awaiting results from yesterday’s Iowa caucuses following a series of issues. Iowa Democrats have yet to announce the results of their highly-anticipated presidential caucuses, citing technology problems and reporting “inconsistencies” throughout the process. While timing on the results are unclear as of now, candidates have already shifted their focus to the next primary contest in New Hampshire on Feb. 11.
